But May requests me since I cannot invite in person. To add her [——-] that you will come over with Mr. Davis on Thursday and spend Sunday with us. Come at once to your chamber under our roof- and so we shall have three days at least of enjoyment-[myself?] the [brother?] [I have?]!-
Pray come and [—–] us. Besides conversation, there Is boating- the hammock, the arbor- and [whatsoever?] [fun fancie?], you [s?]ay ones may conceive. Affectionately, A. Bronson Alcott
